Emmanuel Adebayor intends to "prove" the faith of Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger in him was justified after allowing Thierry Henry to leave - and vowed to help continue the Gunners´ impressive start to the new campaign.

In the build-up to Wednesday night´s 3-0 Champions League victory over Sevilla, the Arsenal manager admitted it had been something of a "gamble" to face up to life without such a crucial player as his former captain - but he also realised the continued reliance on Henry was perhaps holding back the likes of Adebayor and Robin van Persie from realising their own potential.

Adebayor was clearly touched, saying: "Of course when the manager says that, I am very happy and pleased - but the most important thing is to prove it."
